Description: The first major introduction to the Pure Land tradition of Buddhism, from one of the foremost Buddhist authorities in the United States.

With great spiritual insight and unparalleled scholarship, Dr. Taitetsu Unno -- the foremost authority in the United States on Shin or Pure Land Buddhism -- introduces us to the most popular form of Buddhism in Japan. The introduction of this unique form of spiritual practice is certain to enrich the growing practice of Buddhism in the United States, which is already well familiar with Zen and Tibetan traditions. "River of Fire, River of Water" is the first introduction to its practice from a trade publisher and is written for readers with or without prior knowledge of Buddhism.

The Japanese Pure Land tradition dates back to the sixth century C.E., when Buddhism was first introduced in Japan. Unlike Zen, its counterpart which flourished in remote monasteries, the Pure Land tradition was the form of Buddhism practiced by common people. Consequently, its practice is harmonious with the workings of daily life, making it easily adaptable for seekers today. Despite the differences in method, however, the goal of Pure Land is the same as that of other schools -- the awakening of the true self.

Certain to take its place alongside great works such as Three Pillars of Zen, The Miracle of Mindfulness, and Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind -- "River of Fire, River of Water" is an important step forward for American Buddhism.

"Unno's book goes well beyond its stated aim -- it has improved my understanding of my own faith -- and even of myself". -- Alexander Eliot, author of The Global Myths and The Timeless Myths
